Building MySQL on HP-UX 11.31 Itanium

In my continuing saga of compiling MySQL on HP-UX 11.31 (Itanium), I continually run into this error during compilation, and cannot find any helpful fixes:

gmake[2]: Entering directory `/root/itanium_compile/mysql-5.1.46/client'
g++ -DMYSQL_CLIENT_NO_THREADS -DDEFAULT_MYSQL_HOME="\"/usr/local/mysqlc\"" -DMYSQL_DATADIR="\"/usr/local/mysqlc/var\"" -I. -I../include -I../include -I../include -I../regex -O3 -fno-implicit-templates -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti -DHPUX11 -DSNPRINTF_RETURN_TRUNC -DHAVE_BROKEN_PREAD -D_INCLUDE_LONGLONG -DNO_FCNTL_NONBLOCK -DDO_NOT_REMOVE_THREAD_WRAPPERS -DHAVE_BROKEN_PTHREAD_COND_TIMEDWAIT -MT mysql.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/mysql.Tpo -c -o mysql.o mysql.cc

mysql.cc:1866: error: cannot convert 'char*' to 'bool*' for argument '2' to 'char* batch_readline(LINE_BUFFER*, bool*)'
gmake[2]: *** [mysql.o] Error 1
gmake[2]: Leaving directory `/root/itanium_compile/mysql-5.1.46/client'
gmake[1]: *** [all] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/root/itanium_compile/mysql-5.1.46/client'
gmake: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

My configure parameters are: ./configure --without-server --prefix=/usr/local/mysqlc --with-low-memory \
--enable-thread-safe-client --enable-local-infile --with-pthread \
--with-lib-ccflags=-fPIC --disable-shared

MySQL version: 5.1.46

gcc version: 4.33

gmake version: GNU Make 3.81

I can successfully compile version 5.0.21, but anything after that seems to fail.

This may have something to do with a bug fix, details are in:

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Shalom,

Seems like the easy course of action is:

Internet Express

Search for that on http://software.hp.com

Download the depot version.

swinstall it

It sure looks like it.
What's on this line: mysql.cc:1866

It seems someone is passing a char* and not a bool*. So change the declaration of the variable you are passing to batch_readline.

Someone built the depot version. Does anyone know where one could find notes on the process?

Why build it when you can get one prebuilt and debugged already available for HPUX in internet express bundle.
